Annie did a pretty good job keeping that slippery ball where it needed to be.

Annie's had a hard time keeping composed this week. A lot of emotion running through the halls at school. A lot of these kids have been together for a lot of years and they will all spread out into different schools next year.
They also have a classmate that was just diagnosed with bone cancer and she has not been able to be with them for the last few weeks and it has put many emotions close to the surface.

This is the final game of Blue & White day. The Tug of War. This is an E form (8th grade) only activity. Each year it is the most exciting part of the day to watch the E form go up against each other. Mr. Jeff's stands with the hose in the middle for the losing team to cross into the water so the mark of loser is left until the sun can take it away.
The war was pretty even in the beginning-neither team was able to pull the rope one way or the other, it just sat still for several minutes until, it looked as if the white team had a little more muscle. That was all it took for the Blue team to muster their last bit of energy and pull the white through the water. Yea!!! The Blue team dominated this year. (I am just glad that was the color of our shirts today). The blue team basking in their victory-giving high fives to all the kids. The smaller kids are all scared of the E formers until they become their champions.
A few happy blue team members.

This is actually more like it.
Mr & Mrs. Jeff's in their "casual" uniform. Mr. Jeff's told the assembly to take a good look because it could be another year before they see him without a tie on again, and I think it's true.
